Default Hello & horse spit...

Hi folks-

Longtime subscriber, newbie on these pages.

Jus’ wondering- has anyone had any ill effects using old feed water for garden watering?

We had a mini-drought here in NH this summer, & I used the old horse water (horse spit) to water my garden. No problems, mostly, but my cukes went belly up. It was late August- were the cukes “done” or did the horse spit do them in?

Any thoughts or experiences using feed water on the garden?

Thanks…

Welcome!

Can't help you much with livestock water experience. We had a rough summer here in Tennessee. That may have had more to do with the cukes than horse spit. We didn't really see any good cukes out of our garden. Strangely, the caveman club gourds did better than anything. Tomatoes were good, but we've had better years.

Regards,
Pat

Pat-
I thought it odd as the rest of the garden was WILD this year- got 34# of Kentucky Wonders in the freezer!

333-
I WILL check out the garden section, tnx!

Rick-
I like the well worded sentiment, “Welcome to the house”. I’ll even wipe my feet extry good!

Bookwormom-
That’s a relief! Then, mathematically, (0*HS=BU*C)?


Thanks to all for the welcome; I hope I can be a contributor of utility here.

My strong areas are firearms, mechanics (garagineering), & felling, processing, & splitting (by hand) firewood.

I hope I can help!

Be well, take care.
